Weight Loss Surgery Consultation

One-on-one, hour-long consultations via Zoom

Your journey after metabolic bariatric surgery can feel like a rollercoaster, physically and emotionally.

There are many common physical and emotional stages that people go through in the months and years after surgery.

These sessions provide wrap-around support, strategies and techniques. The goal is to educate you on the unique challenges you’re facing, and share self-care strategies and techniques that can help you to thrive.

Our nurse specialist work with you to bring together the head, heart, mind, and physiology in ways that allow you to enjoy your new life.

Regular clients can use our online booking system or can email our admin team for help.

First-time clients need to contact our admin team to set up a patient file and to make a booking.

 PRICE: $120 an hour

Weekend with Kate

Set within the grounds of Kate’s home in Pleasant Valley, a few minutes from Geraldine
(and neighbours with the Barkers factory).

This is a two-day retreat for people who are 14 months or more post-surgery. This isn’t exactly your usual weekend getaway, although we’ll certainly squeeze in a little bit of the sights for you.  There’s no massages or other pampering, although you’ll get nourishing food and glorious surroundings.

It’s a deep dive into the whys and hows of yourself, with Kate as your guide.

Kate guides you through a process that unpacks your story, examining what drives your behavior around food and (lack of) self care.

TOTAL PRICE: $1250 per person
